Such an amazing adventure - loved the snow leopards!
I did this adventure in February 2020 together with my father, who is a passionate wild life photographer.
We liked Leh and I really loved visiting a monastery for the morning prayers. It deeply touched me and it was very interesting.
I am so thankful to Behzad, Brad, Khenrab, Dorjay, Rashid,…. the whole staff, who took such great care of us and made all of this possible for us. It was all very well organised. And I managed to learn so much from you. About snow leopards, about Hemis, about conservation, environment. Of course VOYGR wants to offer you a nice holiday and some nice sightings of snow leopards. But what I truly loved is that these people are dedicated to what they do. You can see and feel its not just a job – its a passion, its an inspiration and vocation to make life better for the animals, for the village people, for nature. We really enjoyed some nice sighting of a snow leopard. Once we spent a whole afternoon watching a mum and her two cubs. It was so amazing! The spotters did a great job too so we could also see blue sheep, golden eagles, wolves, and lammergeirs. VOYGR always had an open ear for our individual needs and personal interests. And I was so happy being able to go for hiking with a guide anytime I wanted.
The camp in Hemis national park is really nice and comfortable as possible for the conditions there. I didn’t miss anything at all in our sleeping tent, toilet or wash room. Our “social tent” where we could sit together, chat, have meals was cozy. Food was always great. I loved the apple cider ritual every late afternoon for warming up after going to the field trying to spot some interesting animals.
For anyone who is interested in snow leopards, who is looking for a adventure I would highly recommend VOYGR.
